What about fights between multinational oil giants and the governments of oil-producing states over control of resources? Do people who care about the environment and climate change have a stake in these battles? It appears that they do, but most have not yet noticed it.

ARKive - a unique collection of videos, images and fact-files of species affected by Climate Change

ARKive - a unique collection of videos, images and fact-files of species affected by Climate Change | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Scientists are predicting that climate change will cause a mass extinction of many species of plants and animals. As ice melts in the Polar Regions, polar bears and emperor penguins are losing vital habitats, the ocean is also becoming more acidic which is killing many corals. Species that live or breed on low-lying remote islands, like marine turtles, are threatened by rising sea levels and extreme weather, and many plants, which cannot move to find new habitats, are disappearing from parts of their range, due to drought and higher temperatures (3).

Robert Swan OBE: "The Greatest Threat to Our Planet Is the Belief That Someone Else Will Save It"

Robert Swan OBE: "The Greatest Threat to Our Planet Is the Belief That Someone Else Will Save It" | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

In Swan's own words: "We should have the good sense to leave one part of the world alone -- Antarctica." But in the energy hungry world that we live in today, there is a very real and terrifying risk that this beautiful continent at the bottom of our world could eventually become plundered for her resources. Although he has set 2041 as his time goal, the Arctic's approaching demise suggests that we may not have the luxury of three decades -- our world may have only one.

How to Survive in a Future without Fossil Fuels

FROM "REFINERY NEWS": This is a guest post by Tom Murphy. Tom is an associate professor of physics at the University of California, San Diego. This post originally appeared on Tom’s blog Do the Math.

 

We can’t expect indefinite growth—whether in energy, population, or even growth of the economic variety. It is not obvious how we maintain our current standard of living once fossil fuels begin their inexorable decline this century. And as I’ve argued before, achieving a steady-state future implies approximate equity among the peoples of the Earth, so that maintaining today’s global energy consumption translates to living at one-fifth the power currently enjoyed in the U.S.

In this post, I offer a rosy vision for what I think we could accomplish in the near term to maximize our chances of coming out shiny and happy on the tail end of the fossil fuel saga.

Central American Region to pay hefty price of climate change

Central American Region to pay hefty price of climate change | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it
The Tico Times - Central America's leading English language news source.

For climate scientists, Central America’s future will bring higher temperatures, dangerous changes in rainfall patterns, stronger and more frequent hurricanes, and stress on hydrologic resources. Central American countries currently emit only about 0.3 percent of the world’s net global carbon emissions, but the region will be disproportionately affected by climate change.

“This is a critical moment in the history of humanity,” said Julie Lennox, of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Fossil Fuel Emissions Found on Alaska’s Glaciers

Fossil Fuel Emissions Found on Alaska’s Glaciers | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

A new study concludes that fossil fuel emissions are likely contributors to a substantial amount of organic carbon found on glaciers in Alaska.

Fossil fuel emissions, which contain organic carbon, can speed up the rate of glacier melt when deposited on glacier surfaces. In addition, the organic molecules associated with these deposits can be transported in rivers and streams, affecting downstream aquatic ecosystems.
